Issa Watanabe

Gecko Press

A vital and powerful wordless picture book of courage, loss and hope—everything it takes to migrate to a new land.

This book narrates, with extraordinarily powerful images, the journey of a group of animals that leaves behind a leafless forest. It is the story of a great and unique migration, a journey where borders must be crossed, sacrifices made, loved ones left behind. With forceful simplicity, Migrants shows us the courage migration takes. Death looms throughout the journey. And arriving may mean burying a portion of the past.

Selling points

  • A powerful, thought-provoking book about migration with multiple layers backing up a simple story.
  • Readers can’t fail to be moved by the journey of these migrants.
  • A continuingly relevant and important topic: the International Organization for Migration estimates 258 million immigrants in the world: almost 4% of all humanity.
  • Sits on the Gecko Press list alongside Duck, Death and the Tulip and The Old Man, very strong backlist titles on important topics whose sales increase each year.
